Set in the year 2019, two part-time smugglers, Jay and Tobias, contrive a deceitful mission. They secretly smuggle Sapphires in Nepal to photograph them at the Everest base-camp, so they can later sell them as high-value Himalayan Sapphires, which are actually extinct. To take professional pictures their common friend Chris comes along with them.
But little did they know that fate had planned something else for them. Their impromptu journey turns into a mystical adventure when they reach a monastery and the monk recites an ancient legend which they are destined to fulfil. If they trap the divine healing power of nature in their sapphires they will hold something priceless. Wishing for early retirement, they rush to perform a deadly ritual on Kala Pathar.
However, perpetual fear and self-doubt scare them to manifest their heroic destiny, rather, the team breaks apart. In the end, somehow they manage to get back together but only to realize that the danger is much bigger than what they had anticipated. However, it’s too late to back down now. There is no other option but to be prepared.
Will Jay and Tobias be able to kill a ferocious mountain demon, before it kills Chris? Will they be able to fly back home on time, in one piece?
